This is the pilot that was made to get "local" televsion personality Lawrence Welk picked up as a network series. One of the most "square" things you'll ever see, but that's part of the charm....

I thoroughly enjoyed this.Welk was virtually unknown in England so I am not overly familiar with him.He had a good band and the show is good entertainment.It would be nice to see more.Thanks to the uploader.

I sheepishly admit I still watch old Welk shows on my local PBS station!
